I try not to whine on my blog...but...this wire business is just so hard, frustrating, and often disappointing. I thought if I just applied myself hard enough and practiced enough I would see results...if I just didn't give up...
But... I have again a string of failures on my desk, everything I have set my hand to has failed on me, and what makes it even more disappointing is that I don't even know what I did wrong, so I have no hope how to proceed towards improvement:(
I was in quite a state this morning, because too many trials can cause alot of doubt in my mind as to whether I am cut out for this? Maybe I don't have what it takes? Seriously why put so much effort into something - if your just not gifted at it?
Anyways I prayed and asked Jesus for help. And asked Him what I ought to work on next, if at all. Than I got up and played around with a Lynne Merchant style wire bead I sometimes practice making on and off. Not really expecting any results, and wondering why I should choose such a doomed project when I was already at my wits end.... and it WORKED!! I actually cried when I saw that it came out well!!
These babies are going to stay with me. This wire bead is the main reason I ever wanted to wire wrap in the first place. The rubies remind me of all the blood that I put into this wire, and Jesus blood shed for me.
